Presented by Auckland Festival of Photography Trust & Kuala Lumpur International Photoawards at Lake House Arts.

The Kuala Lumpur International Photoawards [KLPA] is an annual global portrait photography prize seeking the very best and fresh entries from photographers of all levels in two main categories - Single Image open and a Project-based or themed category. Initiated in 2009, KLPA is recognised as a significant and vital award in the photography calendar, supporting and rewarding contemporary portraiture practice especially in the South East Asian region.

In a long-standing partnership with the festival, KLPA winners and finalists are back once again - view a daily screening of the outstanding portraiture photography featuring the KLPA 2022 winners and finalists selected by an international jury panel.

2022 First Prize - Human/Nature theme
This is a portrait of my 89-year-old father. Dad has Vascular Dementia and Alzheimer's. He spent most of 2020 and 2021 in lockdown in Aged Care due to the Covid pandemic. After months of window visits, I'm once again permitted to visit dad in his room. As I'm not able to take him out, I instead bring some outside to dad. His face filled with wonder. Dad later released the butterfly in a nearby courtyard - Carole Mills Noronha, Australia.
